Join us for the 3rd Annual Akagi Forest Run, which takes place on the beautiful Mount Ōmine. Take in the view of the vast Akagi forest resembling that of a German forest. You'll climb to approximately 1,000 meters above sea level before reaching the summit of Mount Ōmine. Runners can opt to complete half of the loop to clock in roughly 15KM, or to return on the same route to complete 30KM.
The event venue (Akagirinkan Community Center), is located in the middle of Mount Akagi at around 800 meters above sea level. Up here, the summer heat is less brutal - enjoy the refreshing and cool breezes as you race your way to finish the Akagi Forest Trail Run!
